“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind


 
Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).
 

 

 

 
Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!

“The Misfortunes of François Jane” by Patrick Pearse

pearse-1

Australian-born filmmaker Patrick Pearse’s latest film is an exploration of the human psyche as it charts the internal journey of a young man and the woman with whom he becomes obsessed.

Set in Paris, the two characters feed off one another and their surroundings, even as they each inhabit their own delusional worlds. Blurring the boundaries between François Jane’s ideal and his reality, Pearse veers into the surreal.

“The Misfortunes of François Jane” premieres at the Guggenheim in New York October 24th (you can RSVP to the premiere here), with a live performance by composer Graz Mulcahy. Watch the trailer and see more images from the film below!
